Can i make video calling by using the nokia 5230

The Nokia 5230 doesn't have a secondary camera though, so I guess you could receive video calls but not send a video call yourself. Hope this helps. Thank you for using Fixya! May you have a good day.

Yes it does have video-calling supported. Yet, it doesn't have a second camera, but you can possibly RECEIVE video calls (depending of course on software capability), and you can see the video of the person calling you, but you CANNOT SEND video calls, or initiate them.

You can receive video from video calls, but cannot send a video of yourself. You can use an application called Fring for video calls.

I have purchage a nokia 3g 5230 i want to make a video call from my handset.i m unable to find the option in call detail. i found only voice call inspite of video call. kindly solve my problem....

video calling is not only based on the phone but also your network provider must have such services available. A few factors include turning on 3G that is enable all modes in the network settings in the phone settings, location is also relevant since video calling only occurs in a 3G network availability environment. This means that when you movve from place to place there may be no assurance that you will get 3G on.
Another best option is to get more information from your network provider.

I'm unable to receive faxes on my 9420CN . I've followed the manual for receiving faxes, I had a phone technician check my phone line and am still unable to receive faxes.

Most  likely your phone line is digital. You need an analog line. You can try to call from the fax machine simply by dialing your cell/office number and try to call it back
